Swedes ready for hockey final

Sweden is gearing up for tonight's world championship hockey final with nordic neighbours Finland which starts at 20:30 in Bratislava.

It's the fifth major final to be contested between the two countries, with Sweden leading 3-1. The three crowns have won their world championship finals with Finland in 1992 and 1992 and took Olympic gold in Turin in 2006. Finland's victory at the Globe arena in 1995 is their only world championship gold.
